Meet Dr Tessa La Mela (Dentist)

Dr. Tesa La MelaDr Tessa completed her Bachelor of Dental Science degree with First Class Honours at the University of Western Australia. Since then, Tessa has worked in both the public and private sectors of dentistry, but now dedicates all her clinical time to private practice.

Her primary focus is on preventative dentistry and the importance of maintaining healthy teeth and gums.
